Lawren - The screen have a stock protector so if it scrathes u can remove it every time and change it with other one (so yes protectors easly scrathes).The screen on the ZR is Dragontrail like the Z so its hard to get scratched or shatter. (:
Invernes - Thanks bro i will have that in mind! (:
Sehrahxx - Thanks to you too bro im glad to help.Rooting your phone allows you to uninstall stock apps that you don't want like Xperia link,walkman,track ID and stuff(basicly it gives you full control of the phone)
For the Micro SD cards many ppl use 64GB micro sd HC cards and they dont have problems.But they are reporting ones with KINGSTON models so better don't risk with this brand.A good one is Sandisc.
raju, 05 Aug 2013Dont worry I wil go nd kick that sony guy:))) thk u
Waiting for the phone delivery, we will keep you guys posted about my view on the phone when it arrives.
lawren, 05 Aug 2013how's the screen? it's not gorilla glass and i heard it scratches easily? is this true?mate, in case you didn't know, the scratch resistant glass is mostly a bullshit as any tougher material touching the screen, will scratch it, unless it has a diamond screen.
Ofc, corning gorilla 3 has enhanced ressistance over the 2 version but still vulnerable to scratches even tho they might be less visible.
So, any metal touching and rubbing the surface glass of dragon trail, goriila 2 or 3, will scratch it.It is simple physics mechanics.
Regardless if it is gorilla 2 or 3, your metal keys will scratch the screen if in the pocket and on the move.
Therefore, for any phone you buy, must use a screen protector and a case.Preferably a TPU GEL one as it doesn't atract dust and absorbs shocks very well.

Even beats Xperia Z if you ask me, as the full HD is barely noticeable as a difference.
I rarely make such statements but after these 2 weeks of intensive use, I strongly reccommend it to anyone that had doubts about it.
You will fall in love with it from the momment you touch the phone.

is it ok to use 32GB microSD card?
I mean, will it disturb the phone performance if we use the maximum amount of microSD capacity the phone can handle?.. (though we only use 10-20GB for example)
thanks for the answer~
saint, 05 Aug 2013 does this phone support 64gB card prior to its latest update?yes you can use 64 gb memory card. you have to format your card from your mobile for the first time.

Time to write my opinion review for this great phone ! Have it for 3rd day now and its just awesome!!!
1. - Battery - GREAT! first charge cycle it lasted me almost 20 hours of heavyyy usage! (everyone knows what's happening when you buy a new phone :)).The past 2 days it lasted me for a day and 5-6 hours.Im satisfied with it.It charges fast from 0-100% for 2 hours or less.
1. - Camera - Awesome for a dayshots,but in lowlight have abit noise and its abit greeny (heard its fixed in 4.2 update still don't have it so i don't know for sure.)For the IP58 Tried it under the watersink - no problems at all :) - Im too afraid to get it in to the sea but i will some shiny day and try it out. (comments about the flaps and water penetrating in battery aren't true..its secured from everywhere you need to close them well.)
3. - Sound - Great sound! Its loud with the options on (Clear phase and XLOUD) i don't know why GSMArena didn't mentioned that ZR have XLOUD,but it does.Its clear when listening music and recieving calls.
4. - Display - Nothing to talk about..great display with the BRAVIA Engine 2.
5.- Specs - Again the same..Quad on 1.5 and 2 gigs of ram makes the ZR fly..browsing,listenting music,some background programs on.Flies like a bird.(my prev.phone was X8 so..maybe others won't see the difference like i did :D).I think in base thats the most important.If anyone have questions your welcome to ask me.Have the phone rooted already (:
Deff.this is a phone that worth the money! Thank you SONY!
Guys! Can we root this phone? if yes if we can root does it void's the warranty? Please tell me
WiFi PROBLEMS ON THE ZR
Guys, I had some serious problems on my ZR with WiFi connectivity. Took it to the Authorized Service Centre. They tested the phone and found a glitch (after running a test). My phone was replaced within 2 days. It now works like a dream. WiFi - NO PROBLEM. WiFi signal strength - NO PROBLEM!!
John7, 05 Aug 2013I really confident with this phone and was going to buy it yesterday but the salesperson say t... moreMan. Don't believe in that ferrari nonsense things. The phone is very good. The reviewers used this phone for a month but ur salesman didnt even use it properly for a day. About the screen, just tell him that the TFT LCD are the most durable screens in the world. AMOLED Screens are better looking but degrade or wash out sooner. If u dont believe, Read Amoled in Wikipedia. Yes it gets very slightly heated sometimes but not after fifteen minutes but after ten hours of continuous usage. S4 is also supposed to get heated after such usage. Battery endurance is 62h. That means with proper limited usage ur phone can last 2 days. Just see the full review of ZR in GSMArena. However, Xperia ZR is getting updated to 4.2.2 and such small issues have been fixed. Screen, heating issues and battery drains have been fixed. For you to believe, I have posted this link.
I really confident with this phone and was going to buy it yesterday but the salesperson say that this phone has problems.
According to what she said to me, this phone;
-was like a regular car being put with a ferrari car's engine.
-it will has screen problems in a couple of months of using because it is LCD screen
-it will get hot after 10-15 minutes playing with it
-the battery is not as good as promoted, we have to charge it 3 times daily because it drains fast
I just don't know what to say, from all the reviews I read around the web, the reviewers only use for a month thought. I just get confused and refused to buy it.
And the last thing I wanna ask, is there any difference between Xperia ZR with model number C5502 and C5503 other than 3G and LTE?
Any opinions everyone?
#She even told me that Xperia V is better than this and suggest Samsung phones.
